It is stored in both places one for playing and one for a rainy day.
If your console burst into flames today you can re download all of your purchases on a new console once you have it attached to your PSN account.
I like digital because you buy once and can play on two consoles at the same time, its like buying two copies of the game!
If the game dont have online, its not worth it to me.
I speak of PS3, and dont yet own a PS4 to be clear.
Ohhh I see.. So is the digital automatically saved to your PSN account so if your PS4 / PS3 breaks you can just buy a new console and re install it from your PSN ? If so hmm I may do that then..
Just be aware you can not do this with movies you may have purchased.
You can also lose your game saves for many games, but if you have plus you can also upload those saves to remote servers!
i prefer Physical copies...
*the only 2 digital copies of ps3 games that i have are the two free games they gave away when PSN was hacked..
i dont' see the benefits of digital copies.. price? i can get physical copy at a cheaper price.
i took care of my games..
if there was a fire??
i have pictures of my game collection for insurance claiming purpose
i'm just not a digital games collector....
i'm still wearing an analog watch in the digital age LOL
I've always been a physical disc guy, movies, games, and even music I still rather buy the disc and wait a few days. But with the PS4 and remote play, I'm rethinking it. I have my PS4s in the basement. So if I'm upstairs waiting for a signature delivery, would be nice just turning on the Vita, remote play and not having to go to the basement to switch the disc for whatever game.
